The Holy Empire of SunWithFace is a massive, orderly nation, ruled by The Sun And Its Goddamn Face with an iron fist, and notable for its enslaved workforce, avowedly heterosexual populace, and ban on automobiles. The hard-nosed, cynical, humorless, devout population of 2.999 billion Oracles are ruled without fear or favor by a psychotic dictator, who outlaws just about everything and refers to the populace as "my little playthings."

The enormous, corrupt, moralistic, socially-minded, well-organized government prioritizes Defense, with Spirituality, Law & Order, and Administration also on the agenda, while Education and Welfare aren't funded at all. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Solar Sity Sentral. The average income tax rate is 78.7%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The large but inefficient Oracle economy, worth 255 trillion Lights a year, is driven entirely by a combination of government and state-owned industry, with private enterprise illegal. However, for those in the know, there is an enormous, deeply entrenched, quite specialized black market in Arms Manufacturing, Uranium Mining, Beef-Based Agriculture, and Basket Weaving. The private sector mostly consists of enterprising ten-year-olds selling lemonade on the sidewalk, but the government is looking at stamping this out. Average income is 85,309 Lights, and evenly distributed, with the richest citizens earning only 2.6 times as much as the poorest.

The vow 'til death do us part' is often taken as an invitation to murder, citizens pray for sunshine so that they can use illicit sundials for timekeeping, babysitters are a thing of the past, and families returning from international vacations are unable to get their children back into the country. Crime, especially youth-related, is totally unknown, thanks to a very well-funded police force. SunWithFace's national animal is the Star, which frolics freely in the nation's many lush forests, and its national religion is Praise SunLight.

SunWithFace is ranked 125,202nd in the world and 106th in Spiritus for Most Armed, with 0.24 Weapons Per Person.
